Answer: Generally tulips need 12-14 weeks of chilling at those temperatures before they can be forced indoors. Check your potted bulbs for top growth in mid January. If you see green sprouts, gradually bring the container into light and warmth. If you see no green, check again in a week or two. <br>Also, the paperwhites don't need chilling so they can be stored in a cool dark spot until 4-6 weeks before you want them to be in bloom. Then pot, water and bring them up into a warm, sunny room to grow.
